    Got sooooooo confused about this today!

    Work have sent me a letter stating my start and end dates for maternity leave. They put the dates a year apart, but failed to mention until I asked today tht I won't be paid for the last 13 weeks of it!! Cheeky buggers!!

    I also have 9 days annual leave to take before end of march, so instead of my mat leave starting 30th jan, it starts 10th feb :D

    I'm then due back on 9th November, but I'm taking half of my annual leave allowance and going back on 3rd dec. then I'm back for 2 weeks and off for 2 and a half with a combo of leave and Xmas :D result!!!!

    So I only have 18 working days left until 2013!!

    Pip will be about 9months old when I go back to work. Missing him already! Lol!

    Got so confused with all the dates goin round in my head but glad its all sorted!

    No. May leave was due to start 30th jan. instead I'm taking the 9 days annual leave I have left from 30th Jan to 9th feb and mat leave starts 10th feb.

    So confusing! Lol!

    I didn't bother telling my work when I'm going back but was going to do something similar to you (til I went off sick) and took all my remaining annaul leave first to make it start later.

    Feels good no work til 2013 but you miss it?
